Sweeting sweeps into Home Hardware Canada Cup final

December 5, 2015

Revenge was sweet for Val Sweeting Saturday afternoon. The Edmonton skip responded from being dispatched to a tiebreaker by Winnipeg’s Jennifer Jones on Friday to book a spot in Sunday’s women’s final at the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing, in Grande Prairie, Alta. Sweeting defeated Jones 5-3 in Saturday afternoon’s semifinal before a pro-Sweeting crowd at Revolution Place.

Team McEwen headed to men’s final at 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup

December 5, 2015

Mike McEwen took care of his own business, and then he watched gratefully as Kevin Koe did him a favour on an adjacent sheet on Saturday morning at Revolution Place in Grande Prairie, Alta. The end result is that McEwen and his Winnipeg team — third B.J. Neufeld, second Matt Wozniak and lead Denni Neufeld — are one victory away from successfully defending their title at the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing.

Jones clinches semifinal berth at Home Hardware Canada Cup

December 5, 2015

What a difference 48 hours makes. It was only two nights previous the situation for Jennifer Jones’s team from Winnipeg didn’t look good. They’d lost their opening two games on Wednesday at the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing. But by Friday evening she was all smiles. After that opening day, Jones, third Kaitlyn Lawes, second Jill Officer and lead Dawn McEwen went on to win four consecutive games to finish second in the round-robin and advance to the semifinal Saturday (1:30 p.m.). Jones completed her turnaround by downing Val Sweeting of Edmonton 9-3 in Friday’s evening ...

Standings tighten up at Home Hardware Canada Cup

December 4, 2015

It’s a crowded house at the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup presented by Meridian Manufacturing, but that’s not a reference to any elaborate on-ice predicament. It’s what the men’s standings look like. There are only two wins separating top to bottom on the men’s table. No team has more than four wins and everyone has at least two wins heading into the final two draws tonight (6:30) and Saturday morning (8:30). Mike McEwen of Winnipeg brought previous leader Kevin Koe back to the pack by edging the Calgary team 5-4. Koe is 4-2 and tied with fellow Calgarian (and Glencoe ...

Team Sweeting in comfy position at Home Hardware Canada Cup

December 4, 2015

Val Sweeting is more than keeping up to the Joneses and isn’t too far behind the Homans as well. Sweeting’s team from Edmonton improved to 3-1 at the Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing, by downing Kristy McDonald of Winnipeg 8-3 in the sixth draw Thursday evening. Her only loss came in the first draw against Rachel Homan, whose Ottawa-based team (4-0) remains alone atop the women’s standings heading into the final day of round-robin play for the women on Friday. “We feel pretty comfortable out there and the team’s playing really well and setting up really good ...
